Time Flies

(Academics, Class of 2013) Permanent link   All Posts
 Jessica Ward Everyone says that the longer you are at the Academy the faster time flies. It’s so true. I can’t believe that I’m already a quarter of the way done with my junior year of college. Mechanical Engineering is really hard and involves quite a few long nights, but in the end I think it makes time go faster because I am always so busy. Each year my credit load has dropped a little making it somewhat more manageable as the classes get harder, but even my engineering friends at civilian schools talk about the work load.

Fortunately, I still make time to go out with friends. Last weekend we went camping and slept outside in hammocks and sleeping bags, which was surprisingly comfortable. I also was just involved with a coastal beach cleanup service project as many cadets went to a local beach to collect garbage and recycling. This weekend I’m planning on doing a walk for Ovarian Cancer Awareness with a bunch of friends, which is something I am looking forward to. I know I’m going to miss my friends when I leave, and want to do as much as I can while we are all here, because if time continues to go faster, the next two years won’t seem very long at all.
